Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, let's see... My name is Danny and I am 32 years old. So,
about myself... Lets see... Well, I am a Christian, first off. I am
not overly religious, however. My relationship with Christ drives
my actions. Having said that, I do have a church I love that is led
by a set of pastors and staff who are really authentic and caring
and don't get bent out if shape if I don't "fit the denominational
mold" (so to speak.)
I really hate talking about myself, to be honest, because it feels
so conceited. So, instead, here are a few facts to help you get to
know me better:
•I was raised by three women (my mom, grandma and aunt) and
wouldn't have had it any other way. Never felt unloved. Great
•I have had the same best friend for 25 years.
•I love Kansas (especially Lawrence) and all Kansas Division I NCAA
basketball teams (Jayhawks, Wildcats, Shockers).
•I root for KU during basketball season and KSU during football
season (unless they play my Hawks, then I just stay silent).
•Pizza is my favorite food and I can get quite passionate about
finding and frequenting places with a quality pie.
•Having said that, Asian food is my favorite food type.
•I can cook... Not Chef-quality or anything, but I know my way
around a kitchen.
•My brain is chock full of useless information, so I play live team
trivia with friends each week at a local bar.
•I do my very best to help others before taking care of myself and
am determined to leave a legacy on this world before I croak.
•I make jokes that most of my friends roll their eyes at, but I
think Im darn funny!! So, of course, I laugh no matter what. So,
that's at least one person laughing at my jokes every time... Wanna
be the second? Haha! (See... Now roll your eyes... I'm used to
it... It's all good.) ;)
Ohhhh... That's probably good for now. If we get this thing rollin,
you and I, I will bring some more random facts about myself on the
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, I'm a first year social studies teacher
at a local middle school
this year!! And
I'm VERY excited about it. It's a ridiculous amount of time and
work, but I love every minute of it! After working for four years
as a paraeducator
while I went to
, it is
like a dream come true to be teaching subject matter I love to kids
that are awesome! It's a dream job that I've fought and clawed to
get and I'm so satisfied that I finally have it!
I have previously worked as a 911 dispatcher
and a paraeducator in an
working with severely behaviorally or emotionally
challenged children. (As well as the aforementioned past four years
at the high school level in the In School Suspension room.) It was
in the elementary position that I absolutely fell in love with
education. The kids in the program were such great kids and I LOVED
working with them. As I mentioned above, for the past four years I
went to college via internet courses at Fort Hays State
and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts
in Political Science
last May. I am currently pursuing certification in secondary education
with an emphasis on social studies
while working as a
teacher... It's a really sweet gig.
I have a passion for ministry
and attend the Wesleyan
Lawrence and love working with the youth
group. I have had the honor of
serving on the church board in the past. It was an exciting
experience being part of the core leadership of our church during
such an exciting time in our ministry! I still continue my role in
youth group and volunteer here and there around the church. I will,
without a doubt, be involved in ministry for the rest of my life in
some capacity... I can't picture my life without it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love writing poetry
and short stories. Writing
is my favorite
thing to do in my free time (if I get inspiration to do so.) But, I
wouldn't, necessarily, say that I'm "really good" at it. But, it is
certainly something I enjoy doing.
I also hope that my skills as a teacher continue to improve with
experience so I can list that as something I'm "really good at."
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think it's probably my smile. I love to laugh and make others
laugh. After that, obviously, it's my stunning good looks... Oh,
and my humility. ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book: "Lion, Witch and the
" by C.S. Lewis... Well, pretty much anything by
of course, "The
Music: I don't really have a specific type of music that I stick
to... My interests vary from classic rock
and from praise and
to eighties music
. I suppose my
favorite music, however, is jazz
and the vocal standards
like Nat King Cole
. (And, amazingly... Starting to love country
more and more!)
Food: I think a good slice of pizza
with a diet coke
is one of the greatest
pleasures in life. (I have cut soft drinks out of many areas of my
life... But, a slice of pizza without a fizzy drink of some sort is
just not acceptable.) Beyond that, I really dig stir fry
, thai curry
and pretty much anything
of the asian
variety. I have been trying to eat healthier and this has put a
damper on a great deal of things I used to enjoy. But, it is a
lifestyle change that needed to be done and that I'm excited to
make... Plus, I am finding new things every day that make the
effort more tolerable.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, My friends, My cell phone, My laptop, Pizza and, of
course... You! Yes, you there!! With the eyes rolling and such...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Love and the future... Where I fit into the grand scheme of things.
With as many different things I want to accomplish in life and
different interests I have, it is tough to know exactly where this
life will lead me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends... Watching some sporting event or just
chilling out at a bar
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love Sherlock
... It's a horrible, horrible
Seriously, though... My life is pretty much an open book. I have
tried very hard to live a life that I have no regrets in and very
little to be ashamed of.

I sound like the man of your dreams, of course. Or... At the very
least someone interesting enough to get to know better. :)
